Mental Health care Irresponsibility
For the homeless people of the state of Oregon and Washington as of 1987, due to it would have it would have been in place by the time that all the mentally ill was released.Due to the fact that it was ruled that it was illegal to hold them. We would have been able to handle our own, and show the other states like Washington how to handle their neighborhoods, how to deal with the problem of homelessness and the mentally ill homeless, in our communities. The federal government has been allocating monies to deal with the houseless, but it is not reaching those in need, or getting to the people that know how to set up the proper organizations. There is also a large community of homeless veterans that are left out here because of lack of services also that fell through the cracks, they are just now learning how to get out of this due to Undivided House. The rest of us are still falling through the cracks. The melting pot is getting bigger and bigger, since other states are using Oregon as a dumping ground for the mentally ill. We should be calling our politicians and letting them know that we are here, and we need help.
